Garbage/Residual Waste

With the objective of reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, our services use proven equipment, effective kerbside contamination management and engaging education programs to minimise the residual waste from a Council service and increase the yield of recycling and organics. We can offer the collection of waste in a variety of bin sizes, tailored to the municipality’s collection system and demographics.

In all of our operations we strive to exceed our Council customers’ expectation by delivering reliable, professional and innovative services. To ensure continual improvement our Chinderah Head Office maintains triple certification for our Quality, Safety and Environment Management Systems. Our point of difference lies however in our approach to our municipal clients. We work cooperatively, diligently and flexibly with Council officers to develop a great relationship that produces great results.

Garbage/Residual Waste

Our initiatives to directly reduce the amount of garbage/residual waste going to landfill include:

  • Bin auditing and promotion to get recycling and organics out of the garbage bin and into the recycling or organics bin
  • Education programs to help residents generate and dispose of less waste
  • Providing customised bin systems that allow for maximum waste diversion
  • Working together with Council officers on waste minimisation programs

Solo’s history of innovation includes inventing systems, such as divided bin systems, which can economically introduce new possibilities for waste diversion to the resident.
